Patsy Kensit wants to return to EastEnders

Meanwhile Patsy recently opened up about wanting to return to EastEnders. The actress, 55, made her debut earlier this year for a short stint as Lola Pearce’s long-lost mother Emma Harding.

I just want to alert anyone who may follow me that this actually has nothing to do with me.

But she finished filming just weeks later. And now she has opened up about her desire to reprise her role for a longer stint.

She told The Sun: “It felt like winning the lottery to be offered this part. I would love it if my character Emma had a bigger role in the future.” Patsy added: “I already miss filming. I would absolutely consider a return — it would be wonderful.”

It came just weeks after Patsy confirmed she had quit EastEnders. Patsy shared a couple of photos of herself wearing sunglasses and holding a suitcase as she prepared to jet off for a holiday in the sun.

Patsy then added: “Cannot thank my amazing cast members at the simply awesome experience I’ve had working on @bbceastenders for being so kind and loving to me.
